How weird. I just apologized for my inabilty and stated I still have to learn how to use Tumblr. But something must have went right: Tumblr just ranked two of my blogs in their "#cars" top ten (link only works for logged in users). The Dodge Charger III Concept—source: Amcar Guide—went on first place, the 1970 Pininfarina Modulo, which I found at Flavien Dachet's always inspiring "Karznshit", ended up on position nine.
This is funny. I started using Tumblr as my personal scrapbook and moodboard, used it later as a workaround to collect inspiring sources for our Chromjuwelen Grid, but never checked whether my articles are liked by the Tumblr community. All the more I am surprised to find my articles in Tumblr's "Popular Top Ten".
But to make it clear: It was the Amcar Guide, who wrote the article about the Dodge Charger III Concept. And it was Flavien Dachet, who presented the Pininifarina Modulo. This means: The kudos belong to them!

BMW just released four short films entitled: "Wherever You Want to Go". All films aim to take audiences to a place they have truly never been: the future. From the minds of some of the most influential scientists, academics, pioneers, and entrepreneurs of our time, this four-part documentary paints a unique picture of technology, culture, cities, our past, present and how it all relates to the future of mobility. Another Motorkultur Masterpiece. After BMW unscripted.
Mike, it is good to see you and your Daytona amongst all those superheroes!

DAMMIT! I've got to work this weekend. And I'm afraid it'll gonna be hard work ;). I'm a MISS TUNING jury member at the TUNING WORLD BODENSEE, so I will be in Friedrichshafen on saturday and sunday. Just shoot me an email or a dm via twitter, if you're there.
Oh, btw, the Dodge Charger you see on the first image is exactly that Mopar Vin Diesel has driven in "The Fast and the Furious". No kiddin'!
